MEXICAN RICE


This flavorful Mexican rice is simple to prepare and goes very nicely
with Mexican food..
The recipe comes from my friend Amy.


Begin by sauteing onions, adding the rice and continuing to
saute.  Add the spices.


Stir in chicken broth.


Cook slowly in a covered pot until rice is fluffy.


Pairs well with Mexican dishes.  In this instance it was
served with chicken fajitas.

stirring once or twice.  Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for
20 minutes.  Remove from heat; let stand covered 5 minutes.
